Our friends over at Latino Review have learned that Scott Eastwood (Fury) has been cast as Steve Trevor in David Ayer's Suicide Squad.
In the comics, Trevor is a soldier who ends up in a romantic relationship with Wonder Woman. However, given that the new film is pulling heavily from the New 52 DC Comics reboot, Latino Review pulled the following from Wiki about the newest version of the classic character:
“In a conversation between Steve Trevor and Amanda Waller five years ago, Steve tries to convince Waller that Diana and the Amazons are not a threat to global security, as they are benevolent. Steve then becomes the U.S. government’s liaison to Diana during her stay in Washington, D.C. and later becomes the head of the newly formed A.R.G.U.S., (Advanced Research Group for Uniting Super-Humans), as well as the UN’s liaison to the newly formed Justice League. Promoted to the rank of Colonel, his assistant is Etta Candy and he has made his feelings and attraction to Wonder Woman clear to her, although his feelings weren’t been reciprocated.”
This is very exciting news indeed! Eastwood had been in the running to play Rick Flagg, but we feel this new role will suit him much better. Does this mean that A.R.G.U.S. will be showing up in Suicide Squad, Justice League and Wonder Woman? Only time will tell.
How do you feel about Eastwood being cast in the role of Steve Trevor?
In addition, Latino Review also reports that heavy weight boxer Raymond Olubowale will not only provide the motion capture for King Shark in the film, but will also cameo as a member of Amanda Waller's security.
